News // 72nd CANNES OFFICIAL LINEUP ANNOUNCED

Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may not make the deadline.



After announced that Jim Jarmusch's The Dead Don't Die would open the 72nd Festival de Cannes, the world's most famous film festival has now released its official lineup for the upcoming event.


The list of titles and directors spans the world, with prominent names among those on the list, like: Xavier Dolan, Pedro Almodovar, Ken Loach, and Terrence Malick. Noticeably absent from the list of In Competition films is Quentin Tarantino, whose Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is rumored to not be completed. Should it cross the finish line before the fest begins, it is expected to be included in the list. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Tarantino's Pulp Fiction playing the festival.


This year's jury is headed by Oscar-winning director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. He received the Cannes director prize in 2006 for Babel. The rest of the jury has yet to be named.


The 72nd Cannes Film Festival runs May 14 to May 25.
